Randy Vasquez New York Yankees

Randy Vasquez, RHP, Yankees: Vasquez tossed eight no-hit innings against Erie and flirted with a perfect game for the first six innings. Vasquez sat down the first 19 batters he faced, eventually yielding a walk to 2022 draftee Danny Serretti with one out in the seventh. He struck out eight over eight innings before giving way to Carson Coleman, who came on in the ninth to lock down the no-hitter. After a breakout season in 2021, Vasquez proved he was no flash in the pan this season.

Jasson Dominguez New York Yankees

Jasson Dominguez , OF, Yankees: In a game that had no shortage of star performances the 19-year-old Dominguez led the way. He connected for a pair of home runs and made a tremendous diving play in center to preserve a no-hitter as Somerset took the Eastern League title. It was an impressive way for Dominguez to wrap up his 2022 regular season before he heads off to the Arizona Fall League.

ERA of 5.40 in the month of September.

Richard Bleier Miami Marlins

From sporting news: Among the actions that can result in a balk are faking throws to first, dropping the ball while on the rubber, starting to deliver a pitch but stopping, going home without coming set, or flinching after coming set.

Oftentimes it'll be something that's difficult to see, but Tumpane took issue with something Bleier was doing Tuesday. There's a case to be made for the first two, but it's a stretch. One could argue Bleier didn't come set on the first one and he seemed to bring the glove down a tad before delivering on the second. But the third one is, to be frank, a call from nothing and seemed to be made out of principle.

My take:
Maybe check to see if the ump had McNeil on his fantasy team and was trailing in RS.

Batting third tonight. Bo moved to second. I would have done that a long time ago.

Sept. 27: IF/OF Brandon Dixon selected from Triple-A El Paso; OF Luis Liberato designated for assignment
Dixon has raked in the Minors all year, posting an absurd .374/.442/.823 slash line between Double-A and Triple-A. Now, he'll look to play himself into something of a pinch-hit/bench role with the Padres. The righty-hitting Dixon, who would be eligible for the postseason roster in place of a player on the 60-day IL, can play both infield and outfield corners.

"I haven't had a set position for about five years, so I'm guessing it's going to be similar," Dixon said. "Outfield, infield, whatever they need, I'll just be ready."

Dixon, who owns a .228 career batting average across 558 plate appearances with Cincinnati and Detroit, was a childhood Padres fan, born in La Jolla.

"To be wearing the uniform now, it's unreal," Dixon said.

His 5th walk-off!  And this time it was a walk-off-walk!  Which is pretty ho-hum, if you ask me, except in this case :-)

Because ... As such, the magic number is down to four

And ... the Padres had their 12th walk-off victory of the season, the most in the National League

Michael Kopech Chicago White Sox

Michael Kopech (P) CHI-A - Sep. 27
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=13401

Interim manager Miguel Cairo said Kopech (shoulder) likely won't pitch again this season, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Cairo said that with nine games left in the season for the White Sox, they have run out of time to get Kopech back to 100 percent. Rushing Kopech back for one start simply isn't worth it. The 26-year-old righty had a solid season, posting a 3.54 ERA and 1.19 WHIP over 119.1 innings.

David Hensley Houston Astros

David Hensley (2B) HOU - Sep. 27
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=17801

Hensley went 2-for-3 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over Arizona.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Hensley replaced Yordan Alvarez as the designated hitter Tuesday after Alvarez left the game with an ankle injury, and he made the most of it. The rookie took a 1-2 fastball the opposite way to right field in the sixth inning for his first career home run. He also just missed a second round tripper as Arizona right fielder Jake McCarthy made a leaping catch to rob him of what was likely another homer in the eighth inning. If Alvarez is forced to miss additional time, Hensley could see more at-bats and provide sneaky value in a strong Houston lineup.

David Bednar Pittsburgh Pirates

David Bednar (P) PIT - Sep. 27
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=15902

Bednar picked up the save Tuesday against the Reds, striking out two in a perfect ninth inning of a 4-1 victory.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Facing the last three spots in the Reds' lineup, Bednar struck out the first two batters before ending it with a groundout. It was his 18th save of the season and first since returning from the injured list on Sept. 22. The 27-year-old is likely to occupy the closer role for Pittsburgh over the final eight days of the season.

Miguel Andujar Pittsburgh Pirates

Miguel Andujar (OF) PIT - Sep. 27
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=13719

Andujar went 1-for-4 with a double and three RBI on Tuesday against the Reds.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Andujar made his lone hit of the contest count, as he cleared the bases with a double in the seventh inning to drive in the game-winning runs. Andujar has served as the designated hitter in both of his games since being claimed off waivers by the Pirates, and he's hit third and fifth in the order. He should continue to get plenty of plate appearances as the regular season winds down, and he already has four RBI with his new club.

Tyler Cyr Philadelphia Phillies

Stats tonight.

Closer Monkey:

Oakland A’s — With Joel Payamps on the IL, Tyler Cyr has been seeing more late-inning opportunities, including last night when he struck out both Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani with the game tied in the seventh inning.

Updated hierarchy: Acevedo | Puk | Cyr.

Jasson Dominguez New York Yankees

Jasson Dominguez , OF, Yankees: After leaving Low-A, Dominguez has hit another gear. The teenager put together an outstanding 40-game stretch at High-A Hudson Valley before its season ended. The Yankees then moved Dominguez to Double-A Somerset for the team's final regular season week and then the postseason.

On Tuesday, with the Patriots down a game to Erie in the best-of-three Eastern League Championship Series, Dominguez launched a home run to dead center field in the second inning of his team's eventual series-tying and season-saving win. The blast was part of a 2-for-5 night.
